Grounded Hong Kong–based aviation aficionados can enjoy a taste of air travel in the comfort of their homes through Hong Kong Airlines’ latest initiative. The struggling full-service carrier is now selling excess inflight items as it seeks to dampen the financial damage of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, giving customers the chance to snap up everything from inflight crockery, trolleys, and limited-edition amenity kits to pillows, duvets, and wine. Hong Kong Airlines says the majority of merchandise it is putting on sale will eventually become collectible souvenirs, as most of them are no longer in production.

In a statement, Hong Kong Airlines’ Director of Service Delivery Chris Birt said the initiative would be a boon for both the carrier and its customers. “To prevent wastage and disposal of obsolete or surplus items we have in storage, we have decided to put them up for sale after seeing how favorably the public has responded to similar airline inflight product sales,” he explained.

Birt added, “These items can be used or consumed at home or over a picnic with family and friends. We also hope that they will bring back fond memories of past travels with Hong Kong Airlines and build excitement as we all wait patiently to step onboard again soon.”

Hong Kong Airlines’ special sale will begin on Friday, July 23 solely via the boutique e-commerce platform Epix Products. Items from Hong Kong Airlines will be put together in different bundles to offer a mix of inflight products; for example, a half-size trolley will come packed with business-class tableware, cutlery, locally designed amenity kits, a blanket and pillow with cover, plus 24 bottles of wine.

A full-size trolley will include a greater quantity of the same items offered in the half-size trolley bundle, and have 36 bottles of wine. Depending on the product mix, the price for bundles will start from HK$1,788 for home sets and from HK$8,888 for a fully stocked half-size cart, with free delivery offered within Hong Kong.
